Work Bitch!

Song: Work Bitch!
Artist: Britney Spears
Album: Work Bitch!

It's been an interesting time for all these pop girls.  Katy Perry is proving that she can make anything go to #1, Gaga no longer smashes, but she's hanging in there, and Miley Cyrus is just coming out of nowhere and grabbing all the headlines. (While selling tons of records.)  Why not throw in now elder pop princess Britney Spears with the first track off her eighth album.

It's called "Work Bitch!"  And it's... ridiculous.

The odd British accent has been turned up. It is probably the "hardest" lead single she's ever come out with.  There isn't much of a melody in here aside from the middle 8... it's more about attitude.  This is what happens when something like "Scream & Shout" is a hit it seems.

On the other hand, it's nice having a break from personal-empowerment pop songs about overcoming self-imposed insecurity issues.  We get it, you're fucking perfect and learned you can roar all on your own and summon your own inner fireworks because you were ultimately just born this way.


"You want a lamborghini?
Sip martinis?
Look hot in a bikini?
You better work bitch
You wanna live fancy?
Live in a big mansion?
Party in France?

You better work bitch"

Britney Spears is puttin' everyone on blast so y'all know that to get all these great things you're so envious other people have, you have to you know... work.

Like RuPaul said now over twenty years ago... "You better work bitch."


(But why isn't there a comma between 'Work' and 'Bitch!'?)


Work Bitch!
